It bothers me to take a guy who is too small to play DT full time and too slow to be a true edge rushing DE.
If i was sold we were going 3-4 it's be spears but i'm tempted to go with Ware at DE and move Merriman to OLB full time. Ellis needs to get off the field more anyway.
How is a guy that is 305 pounds too small? He's bigger than Glover and the same size as Ferguson.
